I have had 3 of these launchers for several years. The easy loading door feature is definately one of the strong points for this model. These launchers are also user-friendly when it comes to adding additional launchers to the same transmitter. The weak point came when I bought the last of my set of 3. DT had changed from a push button ON/OFF to a magnetic ON/OFF. This launcher is difficult for me to turn on and off and reset to this day because of the precision that is needed to line up the magnets between the transmitter and receiver. However, the description on this LCS website describes a push button ON/OFF, so maybe DT received enough complaints about this and went back to the push button. All in all they have worked well for training.
